WELL done to the Pollensa council for using Agatha Christie´s connections with the port to promote the area in Britain. With abit of imagination it is amazing what can be achieved. It is a bit of a shame that it has taken 40 years but it is obviously a step in the right direction. Obviously Agatha Christie has plenty of scope. I know for fact that many hotels in Britain in the winter (yes, they remain open in the winter there unlike other places I could mention!) organise a whole series of events around the work of Agatha Christie so perhaps this is an idea which could be developed here, even in the winter. Other councils on the island should follow Pollensa´s lead. There are many parts of this island which have attracted VIP British guests for many years; they range from Terry Thomas who had a home in Genova to of course people like the late great Peter Ustinov who used to holiday in Andratx and Pollensa. Naturally, local government promotion budgets have been reduced because of the credit crunch but Pollensa has shown that with a little thought what can be achieved. I wish them the best of luck and hope they are successful. It is nice to see that one council is trying to win back the British market.
